Down the Rabbit Hole


The Tale of Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter

 This classic tale of a rabbit gone wrong will delight children.  Everyone loves this rascal and for good reason.  It’s meant to teach a lesson too.  The pictures are divine but the text can get a little wordy so feel free to condense in your own words. I would read this book to kids 4-6 years old.

White Rabbit’s Color Book by Alan Baker

 What happens when you combine a white rabbit and some pots of paint?  You get an entertaining story about how colors mix together to make new colors. It’s a really fun read.  I would read this book to kids 3-6 years old.

 Duck! Rabbit! By Amy Krause Rosenthal

 Is it a duck or a rabbit? A bill or two ears?  The pictures in the book might not help you.  This is a fun book and you can make this shape:

And decide for yourselves.  It looks like a duck but look again and see the rabbit. I would read this book to kids 5-8 years old.

 The Black Rabbit by Phillipa Leathers

 A little rabbit is being chased by a big black rabbit.  He is frightened and can’t seem to lose his tracker no matter where he hides.  Can you guess what the black rabbit might really be?  I would read this book to kids 3-7.
